On August 13, 2020, ASISTA together with the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), Freedom Network USA and the Tahirih Justice Center joined over 140 national, state, and local organizations called on USCIS to stop its harmful policy of rejecting applications for blank fields on forms. Currently, this policy applies to asylum seekers, as well as U and T visa applicants, all forms of relief for vulnerable populations. We call on USCIS to end this harmful policy that causes needless barriers for applicants, the advocates who serve them, as well as U visa certifying agencies.
